A Shiver in My Bones

22" x 15", watercolour, 1998

I listen to music a lot when I'm painting and I have often used song titles as my paintings' titles. Sometimes they inform the mood of the picture beforehand in the early sketching phase and sometimes they're chosen afterwards to suit the finished painting.

This one is part of a line ("I get a shiver in my bones just thinking about the weather") from a 10000 Maniacs song called "Like the Weather" from their 1987 album, In My Tribe.
